I am so far behind on this blogging thing, so I'm just going to dump a bunch of photos on you to give a little glimpse at some of the things we were up to during the months of September and October.
A marshmallow catapult, just one of many ideas we found on pinterest (love that site!).
This is a pretty typical scene during Lucy's naptime. When she is asleep we tend to break out some of the more elaborate play setups (lego scenes or block obstacles courses like the one he made here). Sometimes I even get the chance to bring out my spinning wheel.
Josh and I started nature journals together. We've done leaf rubbings, collected feathers from our chickens, and drawn pictures of things we see around our yard (especially the chickens and our bunny).
Legos, dolls, books -- all typical parts of our days.
Another play setup. The girl next door gave Josh the plastic house in the background along with some little animals that go with it. She's so sweet!
Lucy likes to empty baskets and then fill them up, often by putting herself inside.
I make the yarn, but Lucy likes to help wash it (warning, a two year old can absolutely destroy a skein of wet yarn in mere seconds--don't ask me how I know).
Somehow we manage to squeeze in time for jumping on the bed just about every day.
We decorate for the holidays...
...and the seasons.
My butterfly ninja and my little cookie monster.
